Stroll the Historic District of Savannah Together

Savannah City Market

Walk to the City Market from any of our Savannah Vacation Homes.

Walk arm-in-arm along the cobblestone streets and take in the manicured gardens and oak-shaded parks dripping with silvery Spanish Moss. Savannah is a great Georgia vacation destination – abuzz with art, culture, festivals, concerts, live theater, outdoor cafes, gourmet restaurants, and of course true Southern hospitality. The largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States, Savannah contains more than twenty city squares filled with museums, monuments, antebellum mansions, magnificent churches, and famous forts of the Revolutionary & Civil War eras. And our vacation villas are located in the heart of this historic district.

“109 West was the Perfect Venue for our Wedding”

We are so pleased to share the experience of one Savannah bride – Ashley. She was willing to share some of her photos with us so we can share them with you!

Ashley said the luxurious bedrooms and setting at 109 West Liberty Street made the whole weekend a wonderful experience. ” We were able to spend time with family and friends, prepare for the big day at our own pace, and enjoy a relaxing, intimate Southern wedding weekend.”

“The house was beautiful, and the catering and floral [decorations] were amazing, thanks to the owner’s recommendations.”

“There was also plenty of space in the courtyard to dance the night away, and everyone had a blast.  We couldn’t have asked for a more prefect venue for our wedding and look forward to returning to 109 West to celebrate future anniversaries.”

Savannah Spa Getaway

Come to Savannah for a luxurious Destination Spa getaway.

There is something sinfully luxurious about a spa. Put everything on hold for few hours in the middle of the day, simply in order to be massaged, buffed, soaked, and otherwise pampered? Preposterous! Sign me up!

A Touch of Paris in Savannah

selling time

Find treasures from the Marche aux Puces at The Paris Market in Savannah.

If you were thinking of traveling to Paris this spring, think again. It may be better to travel to Savannah, Georgia instead. Unbeknownst to many, there is a touch of Paris in Savannah.

The Paris Market & Brocante is located at 36 West Broughton Street, within walking distance from all three of our Savannah Vacation Rentals. Once you open the antique front door, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to Paris. Once you move away from the door, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to some of the most magnificent markets in the world.

Oweners Paula and Tara Danyluk scour the world for treasures. They comb the intoxicating bazaars of Cairo, Alexandria, and India. They visit London wharfs and the flea markets of Hungary and Holland. They don’t hesitate to explore unchartered territory. Yet they return, time and time again, to the place that started it all, the Marche aux Puces in Paris.

If ever you have free time during your stay in our Savannah Vacation Rental Homes, wander over to The Paris Market and Brocante. Look at their fabulous collection of lights and their colorful pillows and bedding. Admire the diverse assortment of jewelry that reflects where it was found. Check out the vintage treasures.

Never a dull moment in The Paris Market. See for yourself.

 

Savannah Ghost Tours

Savannah Vacation Rentals and ghost tours

Discover the rich, and sometimes eerie, history of Savannah.

Savannah repeatedly makes the top ten list for the most haunted city in America. It’s easy to understand why. The city is filled with antebellum architecture and gothic mansions, cemeteries filled with funerary statues, and beautiful, eerie, hanging Spanish moss. Savannah also has a long, rich history. Ghost stories are bound to follow.

Several companies in Savannah offer ghost tours: Blue Orb Tours, Sixth Sense Savannah, Ghosts & Gravestones. Tours leave after dark, and explore some of the more “haunted” areas of the historic district. These tours tend to be entertaining and informative.

Our Savannah Vacation Homes are located in the historic district. Learn more about the area you’re staying in. Have fun, and remember to take everything you hear with a grain of salt.

Fireworks at River St. In Savannah

Watch the fireworks from River Street in Savannah.

We still have room at two of our Savannah Vacation Homes over New Year’s Eve. Be spontaneous. Call a few friends, your sister, or your brother, and plan a Savannah getaway for New Year’s Eve. Broughton Street House is located in the heart of the Savannah’s Historic District.

The weather in Savannah is expected to be sunny and pleasantly warm at the end of the year. With the mild temperatures, why not spend New Year’s Eve on the Savannah River? Savannah Riverboat Cruises is offering several options: the New Year’s Eve Party Cruise includes hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment, dancing, a cash bar, and champagne at midnight; the New Year’s Eve Gala has the above, along with a buffet dinner and a front row view of the fireworks; the New Year’s Eve Dinner has you back on land by 9 p.m., and is ideal for families looking for a special way to celebrate with children. More information is available at Savannah Riverboat Cruises.

For an exceptionally romantic New Year’s Eve, try Alligator Soul. The menu is built around organic local and regional ingredients. The setting is unpretentious yet elegant; you’ll feel at home and you’ll feel pampered.

Ele is another great choice for New Year’s Eve, especially if you enjoy Asian fusion.   Dress your best for an elegant evening of delicious food, live music, and fun.

Of course, spending a quiet evening at your Savannah Vacation Home with good friends or family may be just what you need this New Year’s Eve. Cook together in the kitchen, play games, and sit around the fire swapping best stories from 2011. Sometimes the “less is more” approach is the best way to spend New Year’s Eve.
